Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines between the eyebrows, forehead and in the crow's feet area. Contrary to popular belief, frown lines are not always caused by age. While age is certainly a factor, repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create frown lines, which mean they may even develop in younger adults.
Instead of giving you a frozen look, this 10-15 minute in-office injection procedure works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines. Untreated muscles will still work normally, so you will continue to be able to express feelings naturally. It 's the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
Areas commonly treated:
Some patients receiving Botox or Dysport report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of your lines within 24-48 hours. Full results typically develop within 7-10 days, and results last up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Both Botox and Dysport work very well and at your appointment, you can decide with your provider which product is right for you.
